I am very excited about this weekend. I have an opportunity to take pictures of another wedding. I haven't even met the bride and groom or any of the family. I've spoken with the mother of the bride and they sound like nice people. I'm looking forward to meeting them and looking forward to the wedding.
I'm also excited because I get to use my new camera!!!! Bruce bought me the Canon Rebel T2i for Christmas. It's my new baby. I love her and she is beautiful. haha
Speaking of weddings...we celebrated our twentieth anniversary on the twenty-second of December. What a great day our wedding day was! I love my husband more and more each day.
We usually don't do anything for our anniversary since it is so close to Christmas, but this year we decided that after Christmas we would take a few days and slip away. We did that this week and headed up to Pigeon Forge.
I always take a picture of Bruce behind the wheel when we go on a trip. It's our traditional "Gettin' outta Dodge" pic.
The scenery on the way up was so beautiful. Since we had a white Christmas, everything was still covered in the cold, white, delight. Lovely, lovely!
This is my favorite picture. Look at those gorgeous snow clad mountains!
The closer we got to the mountains, the more we saw these beautiful icicles hanging on the side. It was a beautiful ride to Tennessee.
And a nice warm fireplace to snuggle next to.
Here's Bruce kneeling down by Jerry Clower's name. Bruce patterns a lot of his story telling after Jerry Clower. Hilarious!
We saw a lot of great shows. It was so cold outside that the shows were definitely a main attraction. LOL One show we saw was Babes In Toyland. We saw it once before when we went at Christmas. I have to say this was my favorite part, when the family flies over the audience. This was the last season for this show. I wonder what they'll be working on next!
We boarded the Dollywood steam engine train and went on a five mile tour. It was so pretty. Snow, mountains, and cute little mountain scenes along the way. I was glad I took my head band. It kept my ears warm on the ride.
I rode the carousel too. You're never too old to ride the carousel!
We rode the Ferris wheel and can I say that I will never ride that again? Bruce had me scared out of my mind. Usually I don't get scared and he's the one who hates heights. But the roles reversed about five minutes into loading the ride. Ugh!
We stopped at the lake to see the Carol of the Trees. Christmas music played and the trees would light up in different colors. It was nice. Plus the lights just bounced off of the lake because it was frozen.
Someone was kind enough to take our picture together for us.
This was my favorite building. I loved the trees out in front.
